Notes: very tasty, as always, but a quick on the go meal. I know I haven’t yet made mac and cheese from scratch, but I promise you I will! This is great with the alfredo as the sauce. I ate this while catching up with the roommates after the holidays. A great meal for that. You must try it. The bacon makes it super smoky, and the Brussels sprouts in mac and cheese is a killer combo.
